A Little Delay

There will be a little bit of a delay sharing my weekly roundup of pictures due to my laptop charger deciding to start sparking. Yeah, I threw it away. So while waiting for my new one to show up here are some recent Instagram shots to keep you happy. 🙂





1. Playing with TitleFx (which is free right now!) and loving it. This is one of my senior pictures taken by my lovely friend Jennette.
2. Heading off to Presbyterian Heritage Sunday wearing my Smith tartan scarf. Lots of haggis, lots of kilts, and some Irn Bru (I don’t like Irn Bru at all)
3. A shot from my morning run last week. So blessed to live in a Navy Town.
4. My ootd featuring my cut-off trouser shorts that one of my loving aunts hemmed for me because I was too lazy to do it myself. So thankful and I love the result!

Senior Year

The other night as I was falling asleep, it hit me..

I am a senior in high school.

When did that happen? It has all moved so fast. It seems like just yesterday that I was a freshman and I thought that I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life. I swear that the older I get, the more I have no idea what I’m doing or what I want to do. But also, as I get older I find more and more that I know what is really important in life. What’s important is not what job I have or what education I receive, but what I do with my skills to better the world and the relationships that I have with the people around me. So as I go through this year and take more classes and discover new things about myself I can only hope and pray that God will show me what His plan for my life is. In the meantime; I am really enjoying learning new things in my classes and just kind of existing in the academic world without the pressure of working towards a specific goal. 

So basically I have learned that DISCOVERY is fun. No matter what kind of discovery it is. Discovering things about yourself or about the world around you. 

So, let’s see what happens this year; you know as much as I do.
